World number two Roger Federer sent out a short yet meaningful message to his fans during the weekend, announcing that he married his longtime girlfriend Mirka Vavrinec in an intimate ceremony at his hometown of Basel in Switzerland. The couple announced last month that they are expecting their first child.
Here’s his message posted on his website:
Earlier today, in my hometown of Basel, surrounded by a small group of close friends and family, Mirka and I got married. It was a beautiful spring day and an incredibly joyous occasion.
Mr. and Mrs. Roger Federer wish all of you a Happy Easter weekend.
Federer’s wedding announcement came just days after he decided to reverse his decision to skip the Monte Carlo Masters. The Swiss player is a three-time runner up in this ATP 1000 event and could face 4-time defending champion Rafael Nadal in the finals.
